Wonder how much Stupid Sergio comments about the Dart contributed to the drop in sales?

 

On top of this, I expect nothing but continued sales losses for Alfa and Fiat. Garbage in garbage out. 

 

Sergio will just continue to rape Jeep, Ram and Dodge for the profits to waste on his stupid pie in the sky brands that are not worth bring back from History.
